Just half a point separated the two teams, but in the end it was the Blue Tongues who were victorious. With new Redbacks couple Ben and Jemma (the teams were mixed up this week), sent packing. But what did judges Darren Palmer and Romy Alwill think?
With quite the challenging brief, mid-century modern American, the judges thought Josh and Jenna’s kitchen slightly missed the mark. More 2015 than mid-century, the kitchen was too on trend and current for the judges liking. Romy loved the tiles and the integrated fridge, however thought two integrated fridges was one too many. Yet the big miss was the lack of bench level powerpoints, with the only powerpoints being at the back of the drawers.
The Besser block bricks in the dining room caused quite the controversy throughout the week, however the judges loved them! Romy admired the use of the original floor boards juxtaposed against the concrete blockwork and the shelves. Both judges liked the furniture but felt it was more Danish than American and were a bit concerned with how much space the fireplace took up.
While the “kooky” tiles were risky, both judges thought they was a great move. Darren loved the tapware and the abundance of storage, but thought the statement tiles would have been better off just on the floor rather than turned up on the bath.
